This is the big boulder greeting you as you approach the lower Gutter boulder field. It is 15' tall and very large with pockets all over the left(north/west) face. The first established Gutter climb is on the West face above the little cave, and there will surely be more to come. This boulder is simply awesome.

There is a J chiseled into the front of this boulder.

Getting There 

As you are hiking up the wash this boulder is right in the middle of the wash as you walk up to the lower boulders.
